RITA(CAT: I002641) stands for Reversal of Inhibitor of Transcription Activator. RITA is a small molecule that has been studied for its potential anti-cancer properties. It has been shown to induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) in cancer cells, inhibit tumor growth, and sensitize cancer cells to chemotherapy.
